A CLEAN sweep of victories for BCB Promotions at their latest show at Walsall Town Hall ensured a successful night for the West Midlands recently.

Southam boxer Amy Timlin came out on top in her professional debut at the Showtime boxing event, followed by a win for another debutant Ruben Campbell and victories for fellow BCB fighters Kane Baker, Kelcie Ball, Ricky Summers and Liam Davies.

Birmingham’s Baker opened the event with an emphatic win against Andy Harris, edging referee Kevin Parker’s scorecard 40-36 after dominating from the first bell.

Campbell – son of former professional Ray – then made his mark, with Willenhall boxer Shaun Cooper, former-pro Lindon Scarlett and his dad in his corner throughout the fight.

The 28-year old from Brierley Hill fought his way to a points win against MJ Hall – edging the scorecard 40-38 to earn a maiden victory in the super lightweight ranks.

Former kickboxer and featherweight prospect Timlin was next to step into the ring, taking on Roz Mari Sylanova of Bulgaria.

She showed few nerves and from the start looked focused on securing victory, timing her shots to perfection.

Making use of the space in the ring, Amy was effective in navigating a potentially tricky opponent and claimed a 40-35 victory on points on her professional bow.

Conah Walker won an enthralling bout with Nathan Bendon, after the judges scored the fight 58-56 in Walker’s favour.

Summers disposed of Harry Matthews 60-54 on points, whilst Ball recovered from a knockdown to beat Louis Van Poetsch 58-55.

Meanwhile, Davies claimed the sole knockout of the evening – and the first of his career, as he stopped Nicaragua’s Pablo Narvaez in the second round.
